About the property

3 Bedrooms* 3 Bathrooms* Sleeps 6-8 Hayesville

Our log cabin is riverfront on the Hiwassee River. It was built in 2000. It is located on a private road with a serene setting, yet close to town (6 miles to Hayesville) and centrally located to many popular attractions. This riverfront cabin is nestled in the Smoky Mountains approximately 2 hours from Atlanta, Ashville,Chattanooga and Knoxville.

Our beautiful cabin is turnkey furnished and has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms with a hot tub on the enclosed screened porch overlooking the flowing river. Downstairs contains a Master Bedroom with private full bathroom including double vanity sink, large walk in closet, TV and french doors to the enclosed porch. Downstairs also includes a second bedroom, full bathroom, full kitchen with dishwasher and full size washer and dryer. The living room includes an entertainment center with DirectTV and electric fireplace for your enjoyment on those cozy evenings. The upstairs loft area contains two twin beds, full bathroom, pullout sleeper sofa, TV and a regulation pool table for kids of all ages.

*** No PET'S, due to allergy's and flea's ***

You can grill outback next to the river on the authentic charcoal park grill next to the picnic table and firepit. The Hiwassee River is popular for fishing, rafting, kayaking, canoeing, and tubing. Fly fishing is popular on the river and species caught include rainbow and brown trout, large-mouth Bass, yellow perch and catfish.

The water quality of the Hiwassee River is exceptionally high as it is protected by the State Wild and Scenic River Association. The water flow is regulated by the TVA controlled dam at Lake Chatuge, 10 miles upstream. The river will rise and move swiftly, almost daily, when water is released from the dam. So pull up a chair and cast off in our backyard to catch your dinner.

*** No PET'S, due to allergy's and flea's ***

Bell Riva

  • 1 of 5

Pretty view from the back patio, but the place was inadequate for a group of 8. There are just 2 bedrooms, an open loft area upstairs with twin beds and a lousy pull out couch. We did bring inflatable mattresses, thank goodness. It was very noisy, especially between floors when people upstairs were moving about. We did vacate after 2 days of of 4 day planned stay. The host graciously refunded one night stay.

Maybe it would have worked for 2 couples.

Wonderful Fanily Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Spent a few days here with family. Beautifully, serene cabin right on the river. Grandsons enjoyed fishing from the bank. Nightly fire in the fire pit was their favorite. Cabin is located in close proximity to Hiwassee and Blairsville. plenty of things to see and do or just enjoy the tranquility of the cabin.

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was really nice and we enjoyed our stay. The river view is beautiful and we caught a number of trout and even a few carp. It was great to sit on the screened in porch in the mornings and drink coffee. Everything was clean and well decorated inside. Very private and relaxing location but we had limited cell service. Thankfully there is a landline and we weren't there to be on our phones anyway. I would definitely recommend this property to others who are interested in a relaxing vacation with fishing and other water activities.

Relaxation on the River

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to stay at Bella Riva with another couple for a much needed break, and it was so nice to come "home" after a long day of riding the twisty roads to soak my tired bones in the hot tub and watch the mist rise on the river. The quiet mornings were a special treat.
